    Alum toe links

    Are the ends of the aluminum toe links less prone to poping off over the stock? Had a rear pop off for no reason today. Wondering if I should just order stock replacement ends or upgrade?

    Been sorta looking for something a bit more durable.i wear the plastic part out
    Allowing it to wallow around the ball ends.toe and camber goes out of wack.
    At least they are not expensive.

    alright what is the difference between the 5348 rod ends for the rear toe and the 5347 rod end that is used every ware else on the truck including the steering. They all look identical in size?

    Ball ends are different in the rear.
    I believe it because of the 11 mm that swept back rear arms have

    Ok here is the only difference I can see. Around the pivot ball their is a little more plastic not that much but a little. Got me as to why this is the only area on the truck to use these ones

    My guess is the summit arms, being slightly different than the revo arms
    (Longer wheelbase)on the summit
    Maybe why.thats all I got. Lol
